Blake Lively is proving she's still the street style queen - even if gen-z celebs are slowly taking over. The Gossip Girl star and wife to actor Ryan Reynolds is fresh from paparazzi photos showing her out and about in NYC - Blake, 34, pulled off wintry chic in the Big Apple, also shouting out luxury Italian label Gucci via her snazzy footwear.

Blake had gone for the skinny jeans look - yours might not sell on Depop, but Blake is proving they're still trendy.

Scroll for photos. Blake, fresh from revealing why she doesn't drink alcohol as she admits being sober can feel "alienating," was caught in New York City and solo. The mom of three, smiling at the camera and seemingly totally okay with being photographed, wore a chic, blue-piped and cropped white shirt, one she paired with dark skinny jeans, a loose black and long cardigan, plus a statement pair of boots.

Blake had opted for the $1,100 Gucci Leather Ankle Boots, ones going military style.

The blonde and director of "I Bet You Think About Me" music video, carried a yellow water container, also wearing a cross-body bag to accessorize her stylish ensemble. She went makeup-free, also wearing her signature blonde locks down. Blake's heeled boots come with a chunk rubber sole, red-black, and white strap, plus a chic gold buckle finish. Scroll for more.

2021 sees Blake branching into business with the launch of her non-alcoholic spritzers brand Betty Buzz. Turns out, she's got plenty to say about not drinking.

On Being Alcohol-Free

Per People this month, Lively revealed:

“I don’t drink because I don’t like the effects of alcohol, but I like being a part of it." She added: “I like being social. I like people coming together. I found that sometimes not drinking, the thing that was interesting was that it was a little alienating, because you don’t feel — and maybe it’s just in your own head — but you just don’t really feel a part of it.”

And that was the inspiration behind Betty Buzz. More below.

Building 'Credibility'

Contrasting the likes of 26-year-old Kendall Jenner, this year launching her 818 tequila brand, Blake continued:

"When we first started talking about this company, one of the conversations that came up was like, ‘Are we going to be pushing a boulder up a hill because you don’t drink and mixers are made to mix with alcohol? I mean, that’s the name of them."

"So are you going to have credibility in this space as somebody who doesn’t drink?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, because I feel like I’m somebody who really likes flavor, that’s it for me,'" she concluded.
